. >> as you reported on, joe biden could not be a better emissary on this issue, both for the reasons you pointed out, and also he knows personal tragedy and knows it well. so when he speaks about this issue, too, it comes from a personal place. and i think the president is smart in what he is doing here politically, as well. he knows that assault weapons ban, the ban on extended magazines, universal background checks. those are things that a republican congress is not just going to come out and support. he has to remind american people of how important this is. he has to get the american people behind him, and ultimately even if it takes a turnover in the house in 2014, which is something i think we personally could see. even if that is the end game having the american people behind him is ultimately the only way that anything real is going to happen here. >> richard wolff, a word on joe biden today. i was struck watching him lead the way into this subject. that i really cannot think of a more effective, more valuable vice president that we have had. unless you are a big fan of torture a

and that because of joe biden, because of michael bloomberg, because of former congressman gabrielle giffords that there is a possibility of doing something now or is it simply the possibility of beginning the conversation? >> the it seems like it was the beginning of a conversation that would end in failure even two, three weeks back. if you talked to people that were inside the white house and working with joe biden i don't think there was a lot of hope that they thought they could ever get through an assault weapon ban in the house and the senate. for actually, though, it's not been michael bloomberg's actions over the past several weeks or gabrielle giffords or joe biden's that i think has made the biggest difference. i think the reason why the political landscape is moving as quickly as it is on this issue and why the polls are moving is because the abhorrent behavior of the national rifle association and their reaction not only to newtown but wayne lapierre's press conference, the news of the past few days of a commercial that actually talked about the president's own children and takes

was very, very pleased with what i heard from the president and the work that the commission that joe biden heads. there are many steps in the right direction. starting with the executive orders. but the real the crux of the matter is the universal background checks. this is so common sense. it doesn't make any sense that anybody would be opposed to it. as you mentioned in the intro i just got back yesterday from spending time with newtown families. we were very privileged to be invited, roxanne who lost her daughter the same time i was shot and gabriel giffords was shot, to see her speak to families who are just starting this horrible road of grief that no parent should have to go through. it puts a human face on these statisticses that we keep throwing out. >> john: indeed. and i think that that's what is guiding the president through this proposed legislation. but i want to get back to john with the politics. if the senate pass this is package, and then the house kills it, what do you think happens next? and can the democrats benefit long-term if the house republicans demolish this poten

vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful for all of you taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. we also heard from unexpected people. in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today. graham, julia, kenny and taja. they're pretty represented of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. henna, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave, henna. that's you. henna wrote, i feel terrible for the parents who lost their children. i love my country, and i want
